how secure is your password


now i am not a computer guru
i do however read and listen to folks who are

in the last few years i have written blogs about secure passwords
here are links to my most recent last two

how secure are they 


these old blogs have good links on how to do your passwords to make them more secure

today i will write about them again

if you dont have good passwords i suggest you read these two blogs and today blogs and apply what you learned

each day i have 8 passwords that i enter in to access my email bank facebook and other accounts
they are random passwords like those above
all are different 
i do this from memory
most are 8-10 characters
now i know they need to be 12

i do this as my morning memory test
i know if i cant remember these passwords that my memory is starting to fail me

my neurologists i see are always impressed by this

the idea though is to make sure these passwords are secure

kim komando the computer person posted a link to a password checker to see if your passwords are weak ones or real strong ones

here is the link to the password checker
you just type in your password and it instantly tells you how secure your password is
it rates your password weak medium good or strong
strong being the best
that password in the picture above i just randomly made up a few years ago for a blog i wrote
i put it in the password checker
it got a good rating

i put in a couple of wifi passwords i have access to and it rated them weak
one password showed it had been hacked by hackers already
ill warn that person
i put in our old wifi password and it rated it weak
i put in our new wifi password and it rated it good
i put in my bank password and i rated it as good
i put in my amazon password and it rated it medium
i put in my apple id password and it rated it as good
i put in my ira and financial password and it rated it as good
none of my passwords were rated strong

this website also checks your password to see if its been hacked before
mine havent per this password checker

it looks like i have some work to do to get my passwords to the strong level
it seems 12 characters is what it takes to get your password to the strong level with a mixture of symbols cap letters and low cap letters and numbers

our passwords are the internets access to our souls
